Eva Mendes, who is dating producer George Gargurevich, is in "no rush" to have children
Eva Mendes is in "no rush" to have children.
Despite being very happy in her private life, the 34-year-old actress - who is in a long-term relationship with producer George Gargurevich - does not feel ready to start a family.
She said: "It's great that women can work and have kids but I'm in no rush. I was joking the other day that everywhere you look there is a celebrity having a baby - and I said I hoped I didn't catch it. There are just so many things I want to do."
Eva has also explained her decision to enter a rehab facility earlier this year to be treated for "personal issues".
She revealed: "Basically, I can't deal with everything life throws at me on my own - I need tools and people around me to help. I don't want to sound like a victim because, come on, I'm one of the luckiest women in the world.
"But I have trouble dealing with the fame side of things, so now I see my therapist every week. For me, it's a healthy thing to do."
